What type of edu tech are you developing?

I have an early stage startup called futureCoders. Our mission is to provide rich work experience for budding young software developers. Our model is: - full-time college/students (17-18) work in teams with professional developers - teams work 2 days per week to fit around college/school timetable (one afternoon+evening and one Saturday) - we work in dedicated office space using Agile methods, pair programming and code reviews - we develop web and mobile apps for charity, non-profit or early start up clients - after one year, our students are ready to become junior developers or higher level software apprentices with proven skills and experience. Visit http://www.futurecoders.org.uk/ for more information.

Introduction

An ex-developer and ex-lecturer in FE, teaching programming, networking and computational maths, I currently work part-time managing, advanced IT apprenticeships across London as well as starting futureCoders, a project to help young developers.
